In 1916 the Biograph film company signed black comedian Bert Williams to write, produce, direct and star in two comedies. Williams created "A Natural Born Gambler" and "Fish." While hardly a breakthrough in shattering racial stereotypes (Williams was required by the studio to wear "darkie" makeup), a black production with a black cast was unprecedented. The response was tepid and Williams did not appear in any movies after Fish. Gambler borrows from Williams'... ( 6 reviews ) Topics: silent, comedy, slapstick, black history

A real curiosity in the Buster Keaton canon: “The Misadventures of Buster Keaton” was a theatrical film cobbled together from episodes of “Life with Buster Keaton,” a very-early ‘50s US TV program. In it, he portrayed the owner of a sporting goods store who moonlighted as a community theater’s “managing director, leading man and star.” “Misadventures” was released apparently only in Europe, as a means to capitalize on Keaton’s continuing popularity there. Many of the... Topics: Buster Keaton, talkie, slapstick comedy, 1950s

Long before teaming with Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy starred with Billy Ruge in a series of comedies as "Plump and Runt." It was relatively short-lived, as they did 35 films together in 1915 and 1916, mainly one reels. It was the pinnacle of Ruge's career, and he disappeared from movies a few years later. Hardy moved on to bigger things (no pun intended). In this short, Plump receives an announcement of a coming visit by a rich uncle. He can't wait to meet the beautiful wife and...
